Career and college readiness training offered to parents

  • General Brown families are invited to participate in a free college and career readiness training this month led by professionals from CFES Brilliant Pathways.

    General Brown CSD received a grant last year to partner with CFES Brilliant Pathways to support students on their pathways to college and the workplace. This upcoming January training would be most helpful for families of 10th- to 12th-graders families who are preparing for students’ college or career.

    The CCR (College &Career Readiness) Advisor training involves four 30-minute sessions: a live opening session on January 20 at 6 p.m., two learning sessions you can log into at your convenience, and alive closing session a week later on January 27 at 6 p.m.

    These sessions include information on paying for college, including how to help your child access scholarships and financial aid, find the right college and navigate the application process, identify best-fitting majors and careers, develop the essential skills (leadership, networking, goal setting, teamwork, agility, perseverance) that ensure success in college, the workplace, and beyond.

    The training is offered in both English and Spanish.

    This Family College & Career Readiness training in January is open to all parents and families at no cost. Those who attend will receive a certificate from the University of Vermont and a $20 gas card.
